Stampin Up A Nice Cuppa Happy Stampers Blog Hop

I just love Thursdays, it means it is time for another Happy Stampers Blog Hop.  Today we had a color challenge using a beautiful combination of colors.  We used Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Mint Macaroon.   I hope you enjoy my share today.



Here is the color challenge for today:

The cups:

Bottom cup: I die cut this cup using a piece of DSP from the Have a nice cuppa paper and the Cups and Kettles Framelits and sponged the edges with melon mambo ink.  I added an Mint Macaroon Lace bow and one of the spoons from the Have A Cuppa Embellishment and a few pearls scattered on the tea cup

Middle cup: Using the stamp from the A Nice Cuppa set I used Mint Macaroon ink and then die cut the cup using the Cups and Kettles Framelits.  I sponged with edges with mint macaroon ink.  A row of tiny rhinestones were added along the scalloped edge.

Top cup:  Again using a piece of paper from the Have A Cuppa DSP and the Framelits from the Cups and Kettles to create the yellow cup.  I also sponged the edged with crushed curry ink.  A tea bag tag was inked and then cut out using the matching framelit from the Cups and Kettles framelits set.  The flower was cut with a piece DSP from the Have a Cuppa paper with the itty bitty accent punch. To finish off the tea cups I added the heart flourish from the Kettles and Cups Framelits in Basic black.

More Details:

I cut a white doily and placed it on the yellow banner on the right edge. I added the sentiment to the white banner using the saying from the  A Nice Cuppa stamp set.

Finishing touches:

I scattered some pearls and rhinestones, why, because my cards would not be my cards if I didn’t add my bling.
